10-07-66 Winterland 3 tune teaser recalls how amazing and even diverse they could be even as early as 1966.

My 3 favorite GD live collections include the below, which has some folks flaming over at deadnet for the unnanounced deletion of it from their catalog.

It has some great stuff, I like it all, and the sound quality is amazing.

Then the live disc (2) from Birth of the Dead.
Pieced together from various '66 shows, but as WHARFRAT nailed with the surviving CPW, GMLSG and Stealin from TDIH -

(Cream Puff War, SchoolGirl and Stealin).

"Some confusion on the date and venue but, What a smoker.
Will only take about 20 mins. of your time but your ears and brain will thank you. Jerry and Pig are smokin' on this as well as the rest of the band. Only wish there was about 10 or 12 more songs to go with this. Sound is a 5+."

--complete live shows from '66 are uncommon, n' ya gotta be grateful for the pebbles or boulders that did survive, 'specially say, when it sounds as good as 7-30-1966 (the upgrade-upgrade:)
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1966-07-30.sbd.GEMS.94631.flac16

or the uncirculated '66 gems at www.shnflac.net.

(and even '66 aficianados like me accept that no live tapes exist from 1965, though the nascent band played around 30 (?)gigs that 1st year).

Dates and details are often unk, uncertain at best - time warps are not pure science, or always chrono-synclasticly infindibuluminated.

Maybe someday I'll be as advanced as William Tell who's way into the complex Cryptical shows from 1968, that's some fine stuff, we'll have to see about going that far out-
meantime, '66 is my favorite Grateful Dead - they rocked, got down and started their long ascent - only the Flamin Groovies lasted anywhere near as long (20+ years) as an ongoing band - beginning from '65/'66 in San Francisco
(check wikipedia on that! All the other SF bands from then changed names or broke up the original group long before the mid-'80s).

Lesh lives!

Totally agree about the pebbles or boulders that survied.
Thanx for the reply and, thanks for the cd cover.
I must spend more time hunting down stuff like this.
THE CPW is totally jammin'. Glad you enjoyed it as well.

thanks Wharf -
definitely dug a smokin' Cream Puff in my coffer today!

I was 13 in '66 with my ears glued to a transistor radio way after bedtime - when AM djs sometimes played some strange new music - and I'm still hunting and finding good sounds new to me from then...

So many kids were in bands all over the world then - psychedelic experimental jams from Iceland to Indonesia - but this GD stuff is as close to home as it gets for me.

Happy hunting - I think I'll go for the GD Download #6 and bite the $ bullet...
there's nowhere else to get the unprocessed 3-17-1968 gig-a-bites, conceivably it may go "out of print" as did Rare Cuts and Oddities 1966;-ya never know -

GD Download #6: it is a winner; I listen to it at least once a week.

Dick's 22 ain't too shabby either: Lake Tahoe, CA, 2/23-24/68.

glad I grabbed the 66 rare cuts and oddities since I didn't know it went out of print...

If you want the true smoker, though it is 67:

Totally agree with you about the '67 Shrine show, http://www.archive.org/details/gd67-11-11.sbd.sacks.1613.sbeok.shnf
(note my review on that from 2006).

I recently snagged Dick's Picks #22, I've been getting into it slowly, so far the Alligator suite on the 2nd cd sounds especially good.
